IMG_0115The printed mini dresses are finally coming out to play for a stroll on a sunny Brooklyn afternoon.  Styling a bit of a girly attire juxtaposed with a hipster vibe.

Sweater- H&M / Dress- Forever 21  /  Coltrane Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

Oh how I’ve been dying to whip out all my Spring dresses because it’s been a ridiculously long Winter. I’ve had this aztec flared mini for sometime now, but never really thought that I’d wear it again because I was kind of over the whole aztec print on clothing. Surprizingly, one day I found it hidden in the back of my closet and decided to just throw it on for my usual chill day in Brooklyn.

Since it’s technically not full blown Summer and blazing hot, it was still okay for me to wear a chunky sweater because it got pretty chilly at times. So this light blue sweater did the trick in keeping me pretty warm and comfortable. I could have easily gone the full girlie route with this look but, that’s not really my aesthetic therefore I opted for chunky black boots for a bit of an hipster/edgy vibe to a very classic casual look.

Conservatory Plaid

Visiting one of my favourite places in New York, where I go to sit and think but also enjoy the view of the beautiful garden. Decked out in a school girl plaid trousers and light layers on top for a great transitional Spring attire.IMG_9532 IMG_9545 IMG_9488 IMG_9393 IMG_9412 IMG_9529 IMG_9397

Trousers- Nasty Gal, Crochet Top- Forever 21, Vest- Forever 21, Boots- Zara

Whenever I find myself having free time, I love to head all the way up to 105th street to the conservatory garden in central park. It gets really beautiful this time of the year and can be such a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the scenery if you’re into the whole being with nature thing. As for me, I went there during my Spring break and wanted to stay forever.

I wore a red and blue number that day because completely out of nowhere I felt like having some colour in my life. I believe I’ve worn this plaid trousers before here about a few months back on the blog but styled it completely different (here). This time around, I wanted to play with the colours in the plaid so I layered my crochet top underneath a beautiful baby blue vest as a way of bring out the colours then on top, I wore my navy “Sorry Not Sorry” jacket since it was a bit chilly. I’m here excited to do more shoots like this one and I can’t wait to share on here!

Gun Metal

Cold enough to wear a jacket but warm enough to take the shorts for a ride.IMG_9362 IMG_9358 IMG_9343 IMG_9324 IMG_9261 IMG_9251 IMG_9231Spring break spent staycationing in Brooklyn and getting some much needed me time. I loved that it was such a sunny day but with cool windy breeze, which made it a perfect time to style these shorts that I’ve been wanting to wear for awhile now.

I paired the shorts with my gun mental sweater that I picked up while thrifting one day at Beacon’s Closet, I love the metallic quality of it so much plus it very breathable which makes it easy to where during the warmer weathers but with a much different styling. Since this look was more of casual attire for me I just threw on my biker jacket with a nylon trench for extra layer and also because I was 100% sure it would rain….which it didnt.

It’s Spring but where are the blooming flowers and warm weather? IMG_9151 2 IMG_9158 2 IMG_9199 2 IMG_9186 2 IMG_9155 2 IMG_9185 2

Cropped Sweater- Zara, Floral Dress- Forever 21, Coat- Zara, Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

I feel like it’s about time that the weather here in New York stopped fooling around and give us some consistency. I’m so tired about complaining about the weather and I just want it to be warm already.

For this look I juxtaposed a floral dress and layered it under my cropped sweater with a black skinny pant. Since I technically can’t wear a full on mini spring dress without freezing to death, I thought it would be cool to start combining my spring clothes with the more winter items. Soon enough I’ll be pulling out all my fun Spring wear but for now I’ll have fun experimenting.

Sweater- Necessary Clothing, Flannel Shirt- Similar, Amaya Boots- Miista 

So I’m not sure whats it with me, but I’ve been particularly obsessed with this bright royal/cobalt blue and green combination. Something about two primary colours could seem a little odd and use to throw me off sometimes but clearly not anymore. It’s finally getting warm enough here in New York so I can start to wear more of my skirts and dresses again very soon.

For this look, I took a little throwback grunge element from one of my past looks…which is this beautiful olive green sweater that I ripped up quite a bit. Underneath, I thought it would be nice to layer with a complimentary flannel skirt with my favourite biker jacket. I kept it pretty simple with the make-up, I’m been going a lot more clean around the eyes instead of my usual dark cat eye, mainly because I kind of like an almost all natural look. Let me know what you think of this post, I can’t wait to start posting more often again and thanks a lot of visiting!

Things have been so hectic for me, juggling about a thousand projects all at once, making it quite difficult to manage my time better with blogging. I’ve missed it so much and finally decided to drop everything and post this look I wore a few weeks back, just before I was heading out to have lunch in the city.

Chunky, cozy sweaters have always been a strong go-to for me mainly because I get to be warm and comfortable yet I’m able to dress the look up or down if I choose to. Here I’m wearing this tan shade sweater that I possible stole from my sister because I knew she was never going to wear it, and I paired it with my plaid trousers  for a touch of print that wasn’t screaming “look at me” but, was more of a nice compliment to the neutral of the sweater. I had to wear a huge coat over this entire look but for the purpose of showing the look I opted to leave the coat behind and show the styling with my favourite biker jacket.

I’ll definitely be back to blogging more regularly very soon! thanks so much for being patient with me and I read all your lovely comments <3  have an awesome week.

Just Another Moment

Styled in a very comfy attire, just before heading to my classes .

Sweater- Forever 21, Neoprene Skirt- Zara, Dolman Coat- H&M, Platform Boots- UNIF

I can’t believe I went through most of the Winter  completely forgetting about this sweater which I adore so much. Though I’ve had it for quite sometime, it’s still very comfort piece for me and is super easy to layer on top of anything.

For this look, I paired it with my mini neoprene skirt and an oversized Dolan coat as an additional layer. This is a very simple look for me, mainly because I’m not wearing too many layers and its a look I’d wear this on a typical day to classes. It’s nice when you can put together a look that is simple and to the point, especially on days when you’re in a rush to get to your destination.

Sweater- Romwe  Vest- Necessary Clothing  Skirt- Necessary Clothing   Hat- Tillys  Boots- H&M

It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this this beautiful digitally printing sweater that I got about two years ago from Romwe. I remember loving it so much because the colours are so rich and the graphics is insanely cool which was a definite plus.

Since the weather in NY has been ridiculously gloomy, snowy and annoying, I thought it would be great to go completely against that and wear some bold colours mixed in with neutral colours of grey and browns.  Of course I added my panama hat because it always seems to perfectly complete a look for me.

This is a typical look I’d wear on the weekends doing leisure activities. Sort of an artsy urban vibe with simple put together pieces and comfy boots.

Casual Daze

IMG_8355 IMG_8385 IMG_8351 IMG_8324 IMG_8372 IMG_8359 IMG_8401

 

Sharing one of my more casual daytime looks. There are times when I prefer to just throw on a baggy trouser and a comfy sweater with chunky boots to get on with my day, this post pretty much explains it all.

I was heading out to have brunch one weekend and because of how tired I was from working late night in the studio I just decided to wear a outfit that was comfortable and casual while still being a bit “fashionable”.  I really can’t wait for it to get warmer here in NY because all I really want to do is pile on thousands of layers and stay indoors which is possibly why my posts haven’t really been too consistent.

Anywhos, remember you can keep up with me on my instagram page @marfarlane. I post real time daily outfits, some of my design work and pretty little things during my adventures around the city.

Yes, The Style Alien has officially moved to a new hosting site and I couldn’t be happier. I delayed posting looks for awhile so that I could get everything perfected and to my liking so I’m exciting to share with you on the new layout of the site!

Aside from that, things have been really hectic between working on independent collections and getting ready to head back to school however, posting on here might be the only thing keeping me really sane sometimes. For this post, I decided to share this look I wore around a week ago right before I went to lunch in Williamsburg with a friend.

It was super cold obviously, so in typical Martina fashion…I decided to pile on a bunch of thick layers to help in keeping me warm in this dreadful weather. I wore a cute long black sweater that have this lace detail attached to it which is pretty cool, then I layered with my royal blue biker jacket as a pop colour  against the black with another layer of my oversized faux leather vest.

Let me know what you think of my new layout!
